3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Lightly hazy yellow color with a huge, frothy, white head. The aroma is immense citrus notes, bread dough, herbal hops, and some light grains. The flavor is citrusy sweetness up front, with a nice hop bite. Good, clean finish. The body is very light, and the mouthfeel is lightly acidic. Light carbonation. Overall, this is a light, refreshing, and very drinkable beer. Complex enough to ponder while you drink, but still very sessionable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy straw-yellow. Good off-white head--small, but plenty of blanket lace. Lots of lasting power.
As always, there’s a ton of Belgian yeast to the smell. Behind that is some pale malt, but it’s subtle.
More bitter than most of Ommegang’s offerings. Again, there’s a harsh yeast bite geometry hop in the background, but it’s not prominent. The aftertaste is better on the hop bitterness, but this still the tale of a strong Belgian yeast flavor.

On tap @ Rattle N Hum. A really big foamed one, and the beer itself is really cloudy, golden yellow in color. It smells of blind Belgian yeast, some green apples, a little spicy touch, some alcohol, apple zest and a little bit of silo fart. Smells nice. Tastes like a proper Belgian. Some yeasty tones and a half sharp alcohol sting. It has a just below average carbonation level and a light oily mouthfeel. The green apple zest sticks in the taste as well, and it’s what I would call as light mouthdrying. Somewhat watery finish. 13.06.2013

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Golden orange and cloudy with a white head and visible sediment. Fresh floral hop aroma with citrus fruit, earthy yeast, and light spice. Similar flavor with a medium body, crisp feel and a refreshing finish.

Tap - not much head, pale straw color, light bodied, mild floral hop aroma and flavor with mild sweet malt backbone - not bad but expected a little more

Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, flowers, frutiness, and a bit of spice. Taste is sweet, but sufficiently hoppy. Aftertaste of yeast and hops linger on into the aftertaste. This is a really well done Belgian ale. It was great after a long run.

Smells sweet of Belgian yeast with a bit of a nice hop aroma. Some fruity, maybe banana aromas. Full body in the taste and well balanced. Some Belgian sweet, a bit of hops and some banana nut flavors. All well balanced. Really like this one. Very drinkable.

Great appearance, huge bubbly white head, that held for a long time, and has great lacing. The smell was citrusy and earthy but that’s about it. Taste is interesting. Heartburn after 4 big sips. Very lithely hoppy, tons of citrus, and a nice yeasty character. Mouthfeel is a tad thin, and mildly efflorescent.
